Re: Radetsky March

Right, Berlioz simply made an arrangement of existing music (as did Liszt quite a few times, as mentioned).

Re: Radetsky March

Well you're remembering wrong. Srauss's march is this: http://imslp.org/wiki/File:TN-Strauss,_ ... 10,996.jpg
Very different music.

Re: Strauss Jr., Hoch Oesterreich

Right. All the ones called operetta have no opus number, only the dances arranged from them do (but NOT the few excerpts, such as the Entry March from The Gypsy Baron) The only real confusing one is Ritter Pasman, which is a grand opera. I've seen the opera credited as 441, all of the excepts collec...

Re: Radetsky March

Uh....

That looks like the /Rákóczi/ March https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%A1k%C3%B3czi_March
Strauss Sr. AFAIK didn't have anything to do with it, but both Berlioz and Liszt (the later quite a number of times) made their own versions.

Re: Strauss Jr., Hoch Oesterreich

No, Hail Austria is from the operetta Cagliostro in Vienna. None of Strauss's operettas have opus numbers, but every one of them has concert music rearranged from motives (as you said) of which Op. 371 is but one. All of opera 369–374 (this includes the pretty well known At the Hunt, Op. 372) are fr...

Re: Are any piano scores listed by difficulty?

Lists of facts are always legal, though sometimes the exact method of listing could be considered 'creative'.

I could, though, see categories like "Grade 2 in XXXX" or something? Though granted it'd likely mean popular pieces would get way too many, but it's a thought.

Re: Are any piano scores listed by difficulty?

You’re overthinking this. Look at yelp, trip advisor, and amazon. Users give a star rating and include their reasoning. Other users read these ratings for guidance on reaching their own decision. There’s no “correct” rating because of course they’re subjective. And the trolls will be quickly outed ...

Re: Are any piano scores listed by difficulty?

You miss a bit of the point of the fact this a wiki though. People will be trolls. "LOL, I'll rate this really hard piece a 1 hahah" will happen. And staff would have to clean it up.

Re: Copyright for arrangements

Depends on where you are. If you're in the USA, permission for the arrangement is required before arranging. You know, I've seen similar comments on the board before. It doesn't quite make sense how the ACT of arranging anything could be illegal. Now obviously sharing, pushlishing, selling...whatev...

Re: Danzi: Horn Concerto (unsure of Opus)

And here I am three and a half years later tagging my DLed copy (which means because record companies are stupid, no actual info on something I bought...). I'm almost wondering if it's an arrangement/orchestration of something given the lack of opus number, though it's not of the horn sonatas at lea...

Re: Translating a copyrighted poem

To put things into perspective, anyone who reads something from a language that isn't their 'natural' one is translating it in their head. Writing this down isn't exactly any different. But again, distributing it to someone else is a whole different matter.

Re: Translating a copyrighted poem

It seems to me based on what I've read that the translation itself would fall under 'academic fair use' but couldn't be distributed.

I think you missed the point that some of her comments were deleted (i.e. only an admin can see them now).
